Well spring is here at last! We have been very busy in store preparing for the season ahead of us! New products are arriving almost daily.
The Christchurch Word festival has been keeping us very busy - we even have our own local writer in store - Tracy Chollet. Our window has been dedicated solely to honer her book for the festival. If you happen to be passing, please stop and have a look.
This whole concept started because of my love for our country. I loved to photograph our stunning landscapes. I purchased my first DSLR many years ago and set about learning how to use it correctly. I enrolled in course after course and my love for photography and our country got deeper. Daniel, Sam and I headed off every chance we could to explore our country. I decided to start selling my landscapes. Surprisingly, they sold well. Then one day, walking down this beautiful little street, a for lease sign grabbed our attention. We decided to add to the range and sell handcrafted products, designer fashions - all handmade to showcase that New Zealanders do have unique talents, and that our visitors can find products that can't or won't be copied on a large scale. And that they are taking home a piece of New Zealand, that no one else will have. Its theirs and theirs alone to enjoy....
If you are about on Saturday, pop in and see our Art Gallery, now open. More on the Artists coming soon. Have a nice weekend.
Rachelle at Heart and Soul Gallery
Hi there, my name is Rachelle and I am the proud and excited owner here at Heart and Soul Gallery. Over the past couple of months I have been busy setting up and organising our little shop and gallery with the help of many friends and family.
Heart and Soul Gallery is located in this wonderfully iconic street in Christchurch. If you haven't been here in a while (or... ever?), come down for a visit. Over the next few months I will tell you more about the street and its history. What I can tell you now, is that is is bustling and full of life!
See you soon,
